OREGON, JUNE 11, 101')
BREEDIN0 FROM FILLIES.
Tho scarcity, great demand
mid high prico of draft horses
makes the following suggestions
of tho London Live Stock Journal
worthy of consideration by farm
ers and horsemen of this ceuntry:
"Few will deny that the farm
ers of this country havo been en
abled to survive tho bad times by
the help of their livo stock, and
it is ns important as ever to keep
up the number of those on linnd,
always supposing that n higher
standard of merit is being con
stantly 'aimed at. When the ag
ricultural returns show that
there is a shortage of numbers
in any particular class of stock,
it is advisable to breed from ns
mnny females as possible, in
order to make good tho deficiency.
"The decrease in the number
of young horses will cause
owners of fillies to consider the
question of breeding from two
and threc-yenrolds, so as to
make up the shortage as quickly
as possible, and experience has
proved that Shire fillies, which
have been thoroughly well fed
and cared for, may be put to the
stud at two year old with very
satisfactory results, as instances
of winners breeding winners
could be mentioned. Owing to
the growth of the show system
tho young stock of most breeders
are fed with a view to getting
big animals, consequently the
two-year-olds of to-day are big
ger and more developed than
tho three-year-olds of twenty
yenr ago, and quite as well able
to breed a foal, but in olden times
marcs were not supposed to bo
capable of nursing till they were
five years old, which meant that
they had to bo keep a long time
before they commenced profit
earning by breeding a foal. This
system compares unfavorable,
from a financial point of view,
with getting a foal at three years
old, and that from fillies which
have taken high honors at im
portant shows. As above men
tioned, the show preparation is
usually beneficial for the reason
that tho extra feeding which is
necessary to prepare a young
animnl for exhibition adds to the
growth, and thus renders it suf
ficiently mntured and strong to
undertake mnternnl duties while
still n filly, which a common,
underfed one is not. Of the two
evils it is better to breed from a
filly, than n very old mnre, as
there is certain to be more vital
ity in the offspring of tho
"There is however, ono precau
tion which is necessary to tako
before a three-year-old gets
heavy with her first fonl, and
that is to see that sho learns to
work, otherwise sho may grow
up to be a non-worker, or very
difficult to manage. This applies
to light as well as heavy fillies.
Then, if they fail to breed in
later years, they aro still useful
for somo purpose.
"With regard to light-horse
breeding there is no reason why
a foal should not bo bred from
fillies whilo they arc maturing.
Either at three or four possibly
boththey could renr a foal and
still be accessible for the purpose
intended at five vcars old, which
is quite soon enough for the
hunting field, the carrige, or the
"It is verv necessary to pre
vent waste of any kind on tho
farm, therefore fillies which aro
not physically fit should bo given
tho chnnce to pay their way at
not later than three years old
while many breeders began a
year younger; but as far as mem
ory serves, tho best result have
been obtained by mating fillies of
that ago with two, or at most,
three-year-old colts, rather than
with older stallions."

BENSON 10 QUIT?
Portland Oregenian: That
Frank W. Benson, Secretary of
State and acting governor, has
decided to retire wholly from
politics at the close of his present
term of office and that his
brother, Judge Henry L. Benson
will seek the Republican nomina
tion for governor is a definite re
port in circulation among Port
land men who are interested in
the political situation in tho state.
Governor Benson is now in
California seeking treatment for
a physical affliction that somo
time ago caused him to abandon
all inclination to seek election re
gularly as governor of Oregon,
but nt the time he reached this
determination it was his intention
to become an aspirant for the
nomination ns Secretary of State.
It is now said that Governor
Benson's health has not improv
ed as much as could bo desired
and that his physicians have ad
vised him against shouldering
the strain of a political cam
paign. Tho acting Governor is now
quartered at tho Hotel Alexander
San Francisco, where ho has
been for somo weoks and it is
understood an operation is im
pending. Recently his personal
personal physician, Robert E.
Leo Stoinor, who ia also Superin
tendent of tho Btato Asylum for
tho Insnno at Salem, was called
to San Francisco, nnd it is under
stood will assist in the radical
treatment found necessary in
Governor Benson's case.
Judge Henry L. Benson ia
known to bo politically ambitioua
but tho fact that hia brother haa
been nn avowed candidate for
